The release from Cannonsville Reservoir has been increased to 1297 cfs this morning until further notice.  There is a little color in the river but it is definitely clear enough to fish.  The Mainste is in great shape while the East Branch and Beaverkill could use some water.  Streamers should work well this morning until the sun burns the fog away.  Look for olives mixed with a few Cahills and Isonychias in the afternoon.  The weather looks decent today although we may have a bit of wind as a front moves in this afternoon.  Tomorrow looks great with cloud cover and some possible showers.
